Hi. I would like very much to use this photograph for the cover of a novel, remotely based on the crash of a B-58 at Bunker Hill. Can anyone identify the crewmen in this photo?

The three airmen in this photograph are the flight crew of the Bendix and MacKay Trophy-winning B-58A 59-2458, “Cowtown Hustler”. They set three speed records during Operation Heat Rise, 5 March 1962. From left to Right: Captain Robert G. Sowers, pilot; Captain Robert MacDonald, navigator; 1LT John T. Walton, DSO…. The airplane behind them, B-58A-10-CF Hustler 59-2447, “Rapid Rabbit”—flown by a different air crew—was destroyed 15 February 1962, near Lawton, Oklahoma. All three crewmembers ejected. They were injured, but survived.
